mustard berlin have produced a photo shoot with photographer Graham Thorp for a new Ford Transit Connect, for the agency The Blue Hive  (CD Richard Last / AD Jesper Varlen / Copy John Kelley)

The shoot took place at Park Royal Studio’s, London. Graham was assisted by the wonderful Chris Rands and Natasha Lees who helped create complex lighting setups under Grahams direction. Using a combination of direct and reflected lighting to create realistic daylight and night time moods within the studio environment.

Working with the Blue Hive team again was a real pleasure. Their professionalism, motivation and sense of humour made the shoot a lot of fun and very productive.

Bentley has an unequalled history when it comes to convertibles, and the GT Speed Convertible is the latest, fastest and most thoughtfully-executed of all. Drive it with the hood down and a new dimension is revealed. You’re no longer an observer of the passing landscape but a part of it, with every aspect of your journey – especially the thrilling sound track – amplified in the open air.

We can now reveal our film for the New Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible. Launched at the Detroit Motor Show January 2013

mustard-berlin were commissioned to produce and direct the launch film for the New 2013 Bentley GT Speed Convertible. Filming took place along the Croatian coast in the region of Pag. The combined film and photo shoot was Directed & produced by mustard-berlin (Martin Bennett). Our fantastic local production team was headed by Dragan Josipovic-Joss “Joss” and Žarko Ivković who made everything possible and made the whole shoot run like clockwork.

The post production took place in L.A. and London with Malcolm Crowe onboard again as editor extraordinaire. The VFX and retouch were superbly created by Rushes (London). The beautiful colour grade was handled by Denny Cooper (Rushes).

New Continental GT Speed

The name says it all. And from your first glimpse of the fastest, most powerful two-door coupé that Bentley makes, you know it’s the perfect description. With 21″ wheels and lowered suspension, darkened grille and front bumper intakes glinting in the light, the Continental GT Speed makes no secret of its intent. If you love to drive far and fast, if the exhilaration of a 625PS, 800Nm engine and eight-speed close-ratio transmission makes your heart race, this is your car.

We can now reveal that mustard-berlin produced the recent photographic shoot for the New Continental GT Speed with photographer Graham Thorp, agency Connect, for Bentley Motors. Shot over 14 days on location in Austria and Slovenia. The photo shoot with Graham was part of a larger film and PR photography shoot that also took in locations in Croatia.

Some of the beautiful photographs are now live on the Bentley website and here on our blog, in our portfolio

Coming soon! The launch film for the New 2012 Bentley Continental GT Speed – Directed and produced by mustard-berlin (Martin Bennett)
